He himself issued over 5,600 PADI certifications and is keen to pass on all his “secrets” to help others succeed.

Steve conducts regular “masterclass” workshops, where experienced instructors improve their teaching methods in both class and pool. You’ll get to see all of these techniques in your IDC.

During your IDC with Steve, you’ll laugh a lot! you’ll have fun, and you’ll learn these “real world” techniques that have proved to be so successful. You’ll find out how psychology can help both you and your future students progress in a natural, fun and efficient way. Your confidence levels will soar, and your communication skills will improve immensely. You’ll see some wonderful “life skills” that you can pass onto your future students.

Steve is much more interested in “How people learn” rather than “How people teach!”

Steve has been in the diving industry for many years. He became a PADI Instructor way back in 1991 and started his own dive store in Essex. He is proud of the 5* IDC status his store achieved in 1993. He sold the store in 1996.

Both Steve and Janet have been very active in Dive Centre operations, Managing both Emperor Divers in Hurghada in the late 1990’s and Eco Divers in Manado, North Sulawesi, Indonesia in 2005/6.

Since then Steve and Janet have been very active in studying the psychology of how people learn. Steve helped PADI to design the PADI IDC in 2010 and has been very active in advising PADI with the new IDC due to be released in 2020.
